Description

"'The First Step' is about a program for at-risk students at a Denver charter school called P.S.1.; it's offered by a nonprofit organizational housed in the school called Colorado Youth at Risk. Some teachers and administrators at P.S.1. discovered that the Steps Ahead program appeared to be based on a controversial adult self-help course offered by the Landmark Education Corporation ... a 1970s-era program that many of its graduates accused of leaving them psychologically damaged. ... And yet all of the administrators denied that Steps Ahead was a kiddie version of the Landmark Forum."
